The Immigration Service of my Department issued a notification to the person concerned, pursuant to the provisions of Section 3 of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended). The person concerned has not as yet submitted written representations in response.
The person may contact my Department in writing to confirm or correct their address for the issue of correspondence to them. My Department will then re-issue the correspondence, which will allow an additional 15 days for a response. The address to write to is: Acknowledgements Unit, Repatriation Division, Department of Justice and Equality, 13/14 Burgh Quay, Dublin 2.
The status in the State of the person concerned will then be decided by reference to the provisions of Section 3 (6) of the Immigration Act 1999 (as amended) and all other applicable legislation. If any representations are submitted, they will be considered before a final decision is made.
The Deputy may wish to note that queries in relation to the status of individual immigration cases may be made directly to the Immigration Service of my Department by e-mail using the Oireachtas Mail facility which has been specifically established for this purpose. This service enables up to date information on such cases to be obtained without the need to seek information by way of the Parliamentary Questions process. The Deputy may consider using the e-mail service except in cases where the response is, in the Deputy’s view, inadequate or too long awaited.
